River Road General Membership Meeting February 11, 2013

RRCO General Membership Meeting
When: February 11, 2013; 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Where: River Road Annex, 1055 River Road

Terri Harding, Senior Planner with the City of Eugene, and Planner Zach Gallway will help River Roaders to update Neighborhood Plans for the River Road and Santa Clara. The neighborhood’s SCRROL Report and Recommendations and current SCRRIPT (Implementation) work is the starting point for the neighborhood planning effort. After adoption of the City’s new comprehensive plan and urban growth boundary (anticipated late 2013), neighborhood plans will get underway. This will be an opportunity for neighbors and city staff to jointly discuss our best outcomes for working together on the Neighborhood Plan.

Chuck Durret, nationally acclaimed architect, has drawn up a new vision of the River Road and Hilliard Ln intersection. His re-imagining of the crossroads in the heart of our neighborhood could provide an exciting springboard to focus our energies. He says, “The future of River Road, anchored by this transformation at Hilliard Ln., serves local residents in living easy, connected lives, provides safe crossing for school children, and piques the interest of commuters to both slow their driving speed and pull into grocery shop, sit down for coffee, or stop for dinner on their way home from work, leaving their dollars in the neighborhood’s micro-economy. The proposal transitions River Road to a corridor with its own culture and personality–a new model for a healthy neighborhood.”

It will be well worth your while to be inspired and help build the future River Road.
